Researching the Journalistic Style

Today’s lecture was interesting, although i think it was a Seminar actually. Was great discussing and raising and answering Questions. The Subject matter that we have to choose from seems really interesting too.

I have decided to do an Editorial Analysis of Cultural acceptance and the negative flip side of the popularity, touching subjects like cultural elitism, Bullying and the precious sense of self entitlement that gamers tend to have when faced with people new on the scene. I want to investigate how this culture is growing or dying and see where it may lead in the future.

I’ve started by first looking at the writing style of Edge, I don’t think this should be to hard to take a spin at as it seems similar to my own style.


Below are the Notes Typed up from today’s session.
